The Test2LearnTM Community-based Pharmacogenomics Certificate Program teaches the principles of pharmacogenomics as well as its practical implications in disease states such as cardiology, oncology, neurology and infectious diseases, among others. It trains pharmacists to decipher genetic tests, translate that information, and make appropriate recommendations for the patient (including collection of DNA samples) interpretation of patient results, and counseling and collaboration with prescribers to help optimize patient medication regimens.
The 20-hour ACPE-accredited certificate program enables students to learn by using real genetic data in highly-interactive exercises with an optional activity for learners to undergo personal genomic testing. The Certificate Program is comprised of:
12 hours of home study
8 hours of live training
The target audience for the certificate program is pharmacists in all practice settings including community, ambulatory care, inpatient, professional associations, and academia. While the program is primarily designed for pharmacists, student pharmacists and non-pharmacists interested in pharmacogenomics are also welcome to complete the program.
